Bold brows are one of the hottest trends of the year, with cool kids like Cara Delevingne and screen sirens like Sofia Vergara rocking them proudly. Even the A/W14 shows went brow bonkers, with designers such as Emilio Pucci and Jason Wu embracing their bushy brilliance. So if you want to boost those brows, these fabulous fixers will sort out over-plucked, pencil-thin excuses for eyebrows in a flash. It’s time to go bold, or go home.

The expert tip

Diana Kohutova, regional make-up artist at Bobbi Brown Middle East, gives her advice for achieving the perfect bold brow: “Brush the eyebrow hair downwards so you can see the natural start, finish and line of the brow. Keeping this natural curve in mind, sweep the hair back up and use light, feathery strokes to apply the powder through the brow. Do this several times, each time taking a step back in the mirror to assess where you need to add definition to get that bold, yet natural brow. Set with a brow-shaping gel.”
